Space Monkey

Space Monkey: The Jupiter AM-18 was a rocket that took Able and Miss Baker (yes, these were the names of the monkeys) to the depths of space and successfully brought them back alive. These two primates were the first two living beings that went to space and came back, not dying from the voyage. The purpose of this was to test to see if space travel was safe for humans and today, thanks to this experimentation it is.
